In today’s climate the potential for a targeted attack, whether at a temporary consulate in a remote location or a historic embassy in the center of a capital city, has to be considered and a perimeter protection plan enforced.
It is paramount that the building and those working inside are fortified by a robust perimeter, which can defend against a multitude of attacks. The men and women assigned to be the first point of contact must remain protected should a conflict situation escalate.
The embassy required an alternative solution to upgrade their perimeter security against potential road-side attack, without demolishing the current existing wall. The existing facility and newly constructed annex had limited standoff distance between the road and the perimeter wall. The Ambassador also wished to maintain as much of existing vegetation as possible, which meant installing the wall around several large trees inside the perimeter.
The perimeter wall of the Danish Embassy needed additional force protection against the effects of Vehicle Borne Explosive attacks. The complex was located in a congested area and the current wall could only be upgraded to the required level of protection by reinforcing or erecting a new blast-resistant wall in front of the existing one. This would have been time consuming and disruptive, but by using our defensive barriers the same level of force protection was offered rapidly and without disruption.
